You know when a show starts off with the audience singing along to Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me” over the PA system that it’s bound to be a special night. Such was the case last Friday as Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Emily King brought her stripped-down, acoustic “You and I Tour” to The Chapel.

With nothing but a couple of guitars, a desk lamp and her powerful voice, King hypnotized the sold-out crowd with pared-down versions of tracks off her 2015 studio album The Switch.

None of the songstress’ typical funk or groove was lost with the minimal production onstage. In fact, the exact opposite happened, with King’s star power shining even brighter while she navigated through her 90-minute set without the accompaniment of her full band or backup singers. King has shows lined up for May and August, and if she’s coming to a city near you, we recommend checking her out.
